John Fasullo, Project Scientist
Dr. J.T. Fasullo is a Project Scientist in the Climate Analysis Section at NCAR and a Research Associate in the ATOC Deptartment at the University of Colorado. He is actively involved in research aimed at understanding climate variability and change, and community activities such as the Climate Data Guide and Climate Variability Diagnostics Package. He collaborates with Drs. Kevin Trenberth, Bette Otto-Bliesner, Steve Nerem and others. He obtained his B.S. in Applied and Engineering Physics from Cornell Univeristy and his Ph.D. from the Univeristy of Colorado under the supervision of Dr. Peter J. Webster.
His research activities include:
- NCAR's Climate Data Guide
- NCAR's Climate Variability Diagnostics Package
- Diagnosing Observed Global Energy and Water Budgets.
- Evaluating Climate Model Representation of these Budgets (e.g. NCAR Last Millennium Ensemble, NCAR Large Ensemble, CMIP3 and CMIP5)
- Tropical Dynamics and Meteorology with an emphasis on Monsoons.
- Reanalyses and Satellite Retrievals
- Climate Change in the Eurasian/Indian Ocean Sector and its coupling with oceanic biogeochemical cycles
